IANS

In the budget announced in 2018, the total cess on income tax increased by 4%. However, the income tax rates and the existing tax slabs remained unaltered. The two factors that decide the basic exemption limit of an individual are age and residential status.

Nirmala Sitharaman, the first full time Finance Minister of the country announced the 2019 budget recently which introduced new surcharges for super-rich category of taxpayers. The EY analysis says once the budget proposals are approved by the Parliament, the effective tax payable by the super-rich will be more than 40% of their income. The said changes will take effect from April 1, 2019.

2019 budget did not announce any change in the income tax slabs and rates. Rs. 12,500 rebate is applicable to taxpayers who have a taxable income of Rs. 5 lakhs. Under section 87A, this rebate is made available. The value of standard deduction for the financial year 2019-20 will be Rs. 50,000.
